NextCloud is a SAAS solution that creates a cloud hosted file/productivity server with features similar to DropBox and GoogleDrive. Thanks to Ubuntu’s Snaps it’s easier to install on a server than it is to create and verify a new DropBox account.
Open a Terminal Window (CTL+ALT+T)
sudo snap install nextcloud
- Find your computer’s IP address
- Left Click On Network Icon and View Connection Information
- Terminal: ifconfig
Place your IP address into your web browser and follow the instructions for first time setup.
Probably the shortest tutorial on this site but that’s by design. I think the brevity of this tutorial illustrates the elegance of open source solutions. Typing instructions into a terminal isn’t much harder than typing instructions into a web browser.
